For students entering fall 2019

We'd like to extend a warm welcome to all of our incoming students! Welcome to the Alfred State family!

In order to help in your transition, we've put together a comprehensive new student orientation program. Guided by some of Alfred State’s finest students, the orientation program works with other departments like Admissions, Academics, Health and Wellness Services, Student Life, Athletics, and more to make sure you have all of your questions answered by the time you end your day. Our goal for new students and their families is not only to introduce them to the rich history of the college, but also begin a relationship that will continue on well after graduation.

Please note: New student orientation is necessary for all full time, new, and transfer students entering Alfred State in fall 2019. The orientation fee on the tuition bill will be assessed whether or not the student participates in the orientation program. Online and readmission students are not required to attend and will not be charged the orientation fee. Any student taking an online course will be required to take the online student readiness course prior to course access.
